The newest modification of the twin-engine helicopter of the H145 helicopter has received a Russian type certificate. The start of operation of the new model in Russia is scheduled for the first months of 2022.

Thanks to the five-bladed main rotor, designed without the use of bearings and joints, the helicopter received a smoother ride, which increased the level of passenger comfort. As a result, the payload has been increased by 150 kg compared to its predecessor. Today the H145 is the most powerful helicopter in its class. In September 2019, it landed in the Andes Mountains at the summit of Aconcagua at 6,961 m, demonstrating significant power reserves.

The H145 is a family of twin-engine Airbus helicopters. Airbus Helicopters has delivered over 1,500 H145 helicopters to customers worldwide. The flight time of these machines exceeded six million hours. There are 12 such helicopters in operation in Russia.

The compact, modular cabin for nine passengers with the ability to quickly reconfigure, low external noise levels, powerful Safran Helicopter Arriel 2E engines and the latest Helionix avionics with 4-axis autopilot make the H145 the best choice for the widest range of aviation tasks.
